"Lou Gossett, Jr. was sensational! He was all we expected and more. He gave an excellent speech, which motivated all in attendance. We had a group of students in attendance from Peoria, Illinois. They had come to campus for a college tour, saw one of our posters and decided to stay for Mr. Gossett’s speech. The students really were happy to have that opportunity.
He was personable and spoke in a comfortable manner to the students and community (about 500) assembled at the Lyceum event. The Q & A session presented more opportunities for Mr. Gossett to motivate and encourage those who raised issues about achievement, cultural awareness, and active community involvement. His "star quality" and his amazing longevity as a conscientious actor allowed him to quickly capture the attention of both the students and the area residents who were shown the film, "Sudie and Simpson" prior to the start of the program. We thoroughly enjoyed his presence on the campus and hope that there will be a future engagement with him."
"Mr. Gossett was a very gracious guest here, taking lots of pictures with folks, chatting, etc, and he did just a wonderful speech. He really added to our very successful event."
